My Ultimaker2 has problem with reading gcode file

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm living with Ultimaker 2 with no problem for a long time.

But suddenly, it can't read a gcode file from SD Card(which was included with Ultimaker 2 at the first time).

Curious thing is that it can read another old gcode files in the SD Card.

But when I tried reading with newly converted gcode file from CURA, there's no file.

I double checked from my Macbook and it is there.

I updated firmware and CURA.

I cleaned my SD Card into FAT32 format.

Is there any trouble with my .stl model?

or I missed some format options?

I don't understand what's going on...

Help me

Could be that the SD card is corrupt or damaged.

If it is corrupt, a "format" should be able to clean it up. However, it is best to do this with the "quick format" option disabled (at least, in Windows)

This is not caused by the STL.

Problems like this can be caused by not safely ejecting/removing the card from your computer.

Thanks a lot!

It was found that the problems are corrupted SD Card and corrupted STL file at the same time.

I fixed it both and made it!

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
